What Is Faith Born Out Of?

In his book Quiet Talks on Prayer S.D. Gordon makes the following observation about what faith is born out of.

"The faith that believes that God will do what you ask is not born in a hurry, it is not born in the dust of the street and the noise of the crowd. Its birthplace is in the secret place, and time, the open Word and a reverent heart are necessary to its growth. Into that heart will come a simple strong faith that the thing it is led to ask shall be accomplished."

Challenge: Spend some time this week searching for the "secret place" and making time to open the Word, to meditate on it, and hide His word in your heart.
